Jimmy has a project that does exactly that.

I like Jimmy’s project but do not see it progressing to the direction what I was imagining.

Having said that, what we could do is have a project investigating the missing information in Wikidata.

Wikidata is great, but I do not see how it could serves the purpose, I was thinking about.I was visioning a wiki site where one could start a page with the title: 

General Min Aung Hlaing's[1] speech on TV Feb 8th 2021[2] 

On this page people could edit transcript of the speech and do fact checking on the claims he make.
